Scraper traps, that launch and receive scrapers/pigs when the crude oil pipeline is being cleaned, required corrosion protection.

Belzona 1391S

Carbon steel

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet VPF-2 using spin spray application equipment.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Belzona 1391S offers excellent corrosion protection and can be easily applied by spray. 12 scraper traps have been protected with a Belzona coating in 2017 at a facility in the UK, with further applications continued in 2018 as the new scraper traps get fabricated. Recently, Belzona has perfected the design of the spin spray equipment parts. These parts can be inexpensively fabricated locally.
